Gaynor Pengelly and Julia Thum are a writing partnership bound together by a love of words and a passion for story telling.
Set in Bray-on-Thames, Gaynor & Julia's first novel, Riverside Lane, has received high praise and been described as the next ‘Marigold Hotel'.
“A lovely, witty slice of middle class English village life a la M.C Beaton!” - Sally Hamilton, Mail on Sunday

When we set off down the road to writing Riverside Lane we had no greater ambition than to tell a story that entertained, intrigued and amused us.
Now our path to publication has ended, and our tale has travelled from our imaginations into the public domain. Riverside Lane is now ‘on the map’!
Thank you so much to those of you who joined us on our journey, and a huge welcome to those who have just come onboard!
The Kickstarter campaign for Riverside Lane was a great success, with over 700 copies of the novel sold, and our £9,000 target exceeded. Very many thanks to everybody who pledged to make this possible.Read All About It

Every sentence was exquisitely written, the next ‘Marigold Hotel'

The only good thing about being stuck in bed for 3 days with the flu is that I got to finish Riverside Lane! I enjoyed it sooo much and was very sorry when it ended.
